    It didn't actually power the plane. It was a working reactor, but the experiment was just to test the feasibility of carrying a reactor with the necessary shielding, etc. As you noted, it proved impractical. Some engine designs were tested on the ground, but the programs were cancelled pretty early on.

    Recent talk by the Russians has revived discussion of cruise missiles powered by a nuclear ramjet, a truly horrendous idea that the U.S. experimented with and abandoned in the early 60s. Look up "Project Pluto" if you want to know more.
